2011+ Stock spring height

I'm just curious to know what the stock spring height is on the V6.

Height of 3.7

I have 2012 3.7 w/13,500 miles and she sit's at 28"1/4 in front & 28"3/4 in the rear. I am
installing rear springs this weekend is how I know. The measurements are approximate.

You would think they would build mustangs a little lower. I guess they worry about tearing
out the tranny when granny drives one?

Nice! Ok so the rear is 1/2" taller than the front. Perfect thanks a lot.

Coming from a new edge, the 2011 and up is lower. Here is how I know :3

I saw a six pack in the road, my friend was like oh cool beer! I ran over it. Nothing busted. I had a custom cat back exhaust and x pipe on my 02.

I hit a rabbit in my 12, tiny rabbit, but still, sad. Anyway, it ripped my rock guard and chin spoiler on the passenger side. Also there was blood on the lower bumper. Conclusion, they were both the same height but a 6 pack of bottled beer and I cleared that??? That's like a truck lol

Wouldn't it be better to measure the wheel gap?

Made the rabbit tried to jump over your car as a last ditch effort to save his hide?

In my mod photo album, I've got pics. I measured my 4x4 suspension before I dropped it. It was like 28.5f & 29.25r.
